Hailey Bieber (Hailey Baldwin) was not fazed by the controversy with Selena Gomez and, on Friday, February 24th, the 26-year-old model took steps to restrict who can comment on her social media posts, ensuring that any negative feedback would not reach her.
After Justin, 28, proposed to Hailey four months after splitting up with Gomez, speculation of a feud between the two women began almost five years ago. The "Only Murders in the Building" star and the "Believe" singer had been in an on and off relationship for eight years.
What went on between Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber.
To sum up, this entire story began when Selena posted a selfie of her laminated eyebrows. Hailey and Kylie Jenner then followed suit, and people suspected they were poking fun at Selena. Jenner addressed the speculation, writing, "This is reaching. no shade towards Selena ever and I didn't see her eyebrow posts! U guys are making something out of nothing. This is silly," and Selena responded, "Agreed... It's all unnecessary. I'm a fan of Kylie!"
Later that day, Selena came to the defence of her closest pal Taylor Swift when a video clip on TikTok showed Hailey giving a look of disdain when Taylor's album was mentioned.
As co-host of Drop The Mic, Method Man said that there would be a rap battle with the "meanest songs about a celebrity since Taylor Swift's last album," causing Hailey to make a face of revulsion.
The caption for the video was "This is REAL Hailey 'Bieber'", suggesting that she was a bully and a "mean girl".
Subsequently, Selena remarked, "So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game" making people assume that she was in agreement with calling Hailey "mean".
